Back Button Operation

Since the login changes have started, the operation of the back button has changed for some reason. IE seems to go back to the same place, but SeaMonkey fails to do that. I have tried different browsers and web sites. IE does return to the same place, but both SeaMonkey and FireFox go back to the top of the page. This does not happen on other sites, only the forum, leading to the conclusion that there is a change in the forum software (though I can not find anything in the source listings).

In a related manner, a refresh also moves back to the top of the page. This is not typical in browsers and has apparently been added to the forums. Please leave out these moves to the top of the page and leave the page where it was. Let the browser work normally. When one returns to the top of the page with either a back button or a refresh, I then have to just scan down to where I was before again. It gets to be a real pain and I have found it very annoying in the Acrobat for Windows forum.

Since this is a recent occurrence, I assume it is an issue with the changes to the forum structure. It would be nice to have a consistent manner of operating that is consistent with normal use and not something changed by a new forum setup. Designing software oriented only to IE is not acceptable.

I noticed that there are several options now available in the preferences for display, like turning off a lot of the junk. When I go to one of the ColdFusion type links, those preferences are ignored. I still do not understand why there is an instance in a change when the folks that use the Adobe forums are generally happy with them. At least one person indicated that folks on the MM based forums go to a news format because they dislike the MM format. If it is true that many that use the MM format do not like it, then why the change in that direction? If that is not correct, it would be nice to know what is so great about all the wasted space.

I posted here as what appears to be the best place to post about changes to the forums. I am interested to see the reactions from others as they go back to work this week and start seeing the changes, though small at present. So far I have not seen anything that I consider an improvement and the back button issue is annoying to say the least (no, I will not change to IE to avoid it).

pj,
>The purpose of most of the forums are to ask and answer questions, usually with pertinent information. but also an opinions of what they see as deficiencies in the Product.

And thus my point: it's why you will see far more problems or complaints than compliments, and why seeing several similar posts shouldn't automatically be perceived as a general fault with the application. Or with the computer or operating system, for that matter.

I have tried to stay out of this list of posts that I got started. It seems to have gotten out of hand (maybe due to me). However for Ramón that keeps talking about it as a minor issue, I sure hope you do not have the problem. Always going to the top of the previous page is a real pain. I was just trying to indicate a potential problem or find a solution. I was also fueled with the thought (and past memory) of the changes I expect are coming and will likely not be welcome by many.

Since no one had an answer that helped, I am pursuing the topic separately. Thanks for the suggestions that came along.

Don't worry Bill.

But try and keep your posts concise. Many people will not even bother to read a block of text which takes up a whole page, let alone reply.

There is always a chance that I have a plug-in that is causing a problem, but it is dependent on the forums only. The Adobe.com accepts reload or the back button and retains the last position. In the forum pages, it always takes me to the top of the page. I have checked settings in the browser, and nothing helps on the forums. I just can't figure out what is triggering the forums to load at the top every time. As I indicated, this was new at the time that they changed to the new registration process, but I can't see why that would have made a difference.

I know others have not seen this, but am interested if anyone runs into the problem.

Not sure a correction is needed. He may still enjoy it. However, Adobe might be a question since it is not a product, but the company name.

Not worth debating about Adobe. Every product that has Adobe in the name (a lot of them) refer to a product with another part to the name, like Adobe Reader. Whatever you like though.

My version of SeaMonkey goes back to the original for any page other than the forums. For the forums it always goes to the top! In fact, it goes back to the original even on the Adobe.com site. The forums is the only site I am having the problem on and it started the day of the change in registration. I am still looking at the possibility that a plugin does not interact with the forum pages correctly. That is the only thing I can figure might be the problem since others with SeaMonkey do not seem to have the problem.

An update: I just logged in again this evening. I had made NO changes to my system and now the back button takes me back to exactly where I was. Heck if I know what is going on. I will try it on my other machines tomorrow. If it was something on the server, thanks. Bill

Well stop it. We don't need to have to view 24 of your postings, in the off chance that one of them is important/useful. Let gravity take its course.
